Is Jerry, a guy who has never put a huge stock in the interior o-line before, going to be willing to do that? I think Mathis is a very good plan C option that wont break the bank.

There arent too many CB's over 6' that have had great success in the NFL. They usually struggle to stay with the more agile WR's. To me Jenkins is possibly the best pure cover corner in this draft. If he stayed at Florida and never got busted for weed its possible he goes ahead of Claiborne. Obviously a big if, but thats why Jerry and Jason need to do their homework on the kid and determine if he is or isnt a concern character wise going forward.
If neither Grubbs or Nicks is available, then yes I agree haha. I think at least one of them will be though.
I guess I thought Jenkins was smaller than that. He looks skinny to me...maybe not though. I admit I didn't see a lot of Northern Alabama this year
